1. Hyundai i20:
The new Hyundai i20 has already made its global debut. The car was scheduled for an India launch in August 2020 but we believe that the launch might be pushed back because of the disruptions in manufacturing. The i20 will use the same engine options like the recently launched Verna with two petrol motors and a diesel. The i20 will rival the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, the upcoming Honda Jazz and the VW Polo.
Nexa's flagship model S-Cross will be coming soon in a petrol variant and BS6 upgrade. The S-Cross petrol will come with the K15B 1.5-litre petrol engine from the Ciaz that generates 103 BHP. The car will come with a 5-speed manual transmission. It is also possible that the S-Cross would come in an automatic variant for the first time if Maruti throws in the 4-speed auto as well.
3. Kia Sonet:
Korean carmaker KIA will be launching its third vehicle in India after the success of Seltos and Carnival. KIA Sonet will be a compact SUV and will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and the Ford EcoSport.
4. Honda City:
One of the biggest upcoming launches is that of the all-new Honda City. The next-generation Honda City is expected to hit the Indian roads next month. The car will be available in both diesel and petrol options. Both manual and CVT options will be available for the users. The Honda City will take on the Maruti Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.
5. MG Hector Plus:
The new MG Hector Plus that was unveiled in the Auto Expo 2020 was expected to be on Indian roads by now but the disruptions in MG's manufacturing hub have pushed back the plans. The car will be launched in the month of July or August in India and will compete with the likes of Mahindra XUV500, and Tata Gravitas.
